iW NEWS | Sundance Institute Names Fellows for Composers Lab

Six musicians have been selected for the 10th Sundance Institute Composers Lab, taking place July 24 – August 9 in Sundance, Utah. This year’s Composers Lab Fellows are Jeremy Flower, Derrick Hodge, Shahzad Ali Ismaily, Enis Rotthoff, Gingger Shankar, and Jeff Toyne. During the two-weeklab, organized by the Sundance Institute, fellows participate in workshops and creative exercises under the guidance of veteran film composers and film music professionals. The Composers Lab fellows also collaborate with filmmakers from the Sundance Institute Feature Film Program and Documentary Program to “explore the process of writing music for film and to create accompanying scores for scenes shot during the Feature Film Program’s Directors Lab and those workshopped through the Documentary Program’s Edit and Storytelling Lab.” “Music is a vital part of filmmaking, but young filmmakers don’t have many opportunities to learn about film music until they’re in the hot seat,” commented Peter Golub, Director, Sundance Institute Film Music Program in a statement. “This Lab provides a unique opportunity for emerging composers and filmmakers to work together in an atmosphere that encourages experimentation.” [Brian Brooks]
